GN vs. GT500
I ran a GT500, he wasnt talking to anyone, just acting like his GT500 was a
Ford GT or something. He did a really weird burnout and I let him get the
jump. I guess he liked his rims to much to get a stickier tire because all
he did was spin. It wasnt even a race, his time ended up being 21.41
seconds in the quarter.
Reaper231 Grand National Out for Prey!
What you don't see is the 2 cops sitting to left @ a gas Station taking
care of a fender bender accident. Of course they didn't pursue the
recklessness of one GN owner.
The Legend: Turbo Buicks
The Smoking Tire heads out to Fontana, CA for a drag strip meetup with the
guys from turboBuick.com and learns
about the one-time "fastest car in America," the Buick Grand National.
Grand National passes Corvette as it wrecks
John N. testing his tricked out Stage 2 Grand National at Thunder Valley
Raceway park. His opponent in a Corvette stays in it too long and narrowly
misses hitting the GN as it passes by! The GN's build up had recently been
completed and this was intended to be a soft pass with only 20# of Boost. The camera person was there to film
the car's reaction to the launch for tuning purposes. They were so focused
on the GN that they did not notice what was happening to the Corvette until
it was over.
